Use child description as sensor name



  • I am confused as to why the child sensor description string is not used for the name of the sensor. I have a board with many push buttons attached and their names in the sketch are meaningful. Is there a way to automatically have them discovered as, e.g.:

    friendly_name: Living Room S 1
    

    instead of

    friendly_name: InputBinary1 1 58
    

    I would not have to rename them manually.

    This will need a PR to home assistant. I like the idea, so I'll put it on my todo list. PR is also welcome.
